BIDMC Cancer Center Distinguished Lecture Series: “Metabolic Phenotypes and Liabilities in Human Cancer”

Address to event


A Lecture by: 

Ralph J. DeBerardinis, MD, PhD
Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Professor, Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern Medical Center

Dr. DeBerardinis earned his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. DeBerardinis studies the role of altered metabolism in pediatric inborn errors of metabolism, cancer and other diseases. He is an Investigator in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Professor in the Children’s Research Institute at UT Southwestern Medical Center. As the Chief of Pediatric Genetics and Metabolism at UT Southwestern, his clinical team seeks to improve diagnostics and care of children with genetically-defined metabolic disorders. He also directs the CRI’s Genetic and Metabolic Disease Program, which performs basic and translational research to discover new aspects of metabolic disease amenable to clinical intervention. The DeBerardinis laboratory has identified many metabolic pathways that support cancer cell growth and cancer progression.
